What I’m Reading

I’ve never done the “Teaser Tuesday” meme before. Here’s how it works:

Grab your current read.
Let the book fall open to a random page.
Share with us two (2) “teaser” sentences from that page, somewhere between lines 7 and 12.
You also need to share the title of the book that you’re getting your “teaser” from … that way people can have some great book recommendations if they like the teaser you’ve given!

This is from the page I’m on:

Simultaneously the thought came to her that should her parents know of this it might not be possible for her to continue this relationship in any form, let alone to develop it or to enjoy it in the future. Yet regardless of this thought now, which arrested and stilled her for a moment, she continued to yearn toward him.

from: An American Tragedy by Theodore Dreiser, p. 380 (Signet Classic).

I've been enjoying this novel but haven't had much time to read so I'm not even half way through it yet.
